Spring Into Action
First day of spring; Arthur’s favorite day of the year. People who make resolutions in January are idiots, he decided. He believed the first day of spring is the day to renew, recharge one’s soul.
Getting out of bed, he changed into his running clothes, looking forward to arriving at the park just before dawn, greeting the sun as it peeked over the horizon. As he opened the door, snowflakes from a late winter storm blew into Arthur’s face, hinting at the brutal bleakness waiting for him, should he go outside.
Good grief, Arthur thought. I’m going back to bed.
